Ocean Installer has been awarded three significant contracts for subsea installations and tie-in operations for Statoil on Johan Sverdrup, Oseberg Vestflanken and Gina Krog.
The three awards constitute a significant portion of Statoil’s planned subsea construction work on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for the 2017 season.
“We are truly pleased to have secured these contracts with Statoil in today’s highly competitive market. The awards will contribute to maintaining a good activity level for the Ocean Installer organisation also for next year, and is an opportunity for Ocean Installer to further develop our solid working relationship with Statoil,” says Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise.
On Gina Krog, the work scope consists of fabrication of spools and installation of Pipeline end manifold (PLEM) structure, pipeline spools and protection covers, while the Oseberg work scope encompasses fabrication of pipeline spools and protection covers, as well as installation of umbilical, tie-in and pre-commissioning. The work scope on Johan Sverdrup includes installation of three subsea templates for water injection.
Ocean Installer will utilise a combination of its large state-of-the-art construction support vessel (CSV) Normand Vision and the smaller CSV Normand Mermaid for the work.
The offshore operations will take place in Q2 and Q3 2017.
Project management and engineering will be based at Ocean Installer’s headquarter in Stavanger and commence with immediate effect.
